Hi everyone! Brutus here, reporting from the field.
Mom is feeling a little yucky today, so it's up to me to start the week off on the right paw!
This weekend me, my mom & a few of the humans from my extended pack went to a big park where there were more dogs than I've ever seen. It was really hot (you can see I have one of my cool coats on), and mom kept throwing me into the many swimming pools (ugh!) that were scattered around the park. She also brought lots of ice water for me to drink & made sure I went into the shade if my tongue started hanging out too far!
I saw my fellow canines doing all kinds of things, from obedience & jumping like I do, to police work, dock diving, racing, and lure coursing! There were dogs of every shape, color, and size, and I think all of them wanted to be my friend! Just as importantly, the dogs brought a lot of humans along too, many of whom pointed and giggled at my cute little self.
To show everyone how neat the Dog Fair was, I'm posting some of my favorite pictures! Mom even made me include some that I'm not in *hmph*! Anyways, here's what we saw:
There were black dogs and white dogs...
... and black & white dogs in all sizes!
.... and really short, but long dogs! (Martha Basset, we thought of you!)
Tall & fancy dogs....
(she doesn't seem to mind the hat, poor thing)
... and just plain wet dogs.
There were lure-coursing dogs that ran like the wind....
(that's my aunt Maggie in these two pictures! She's a really fast greyhound!)
... and "racing" dogs that ran more like, well... ketchup out of a bottle
(wiener dog race!!)
We saw dock dogs that dove right in...
...and hot dogs that just wanted to cool their paws (I wonder if he knows Bo??)
There were dogs looking for a human to adopt them (that's an albino Doberman on the left - how cool!)....
...and dogs that had already found their forever homes!
(these three rescue greyhounds are my aunt Maggie, and my cousins Monty & Gracie)
There were big, slobbery, friendly dogs...
(She's a bullmastiff - a large girl, but we really hit it off! How can you not like a lady with slobber & face wrinkles??)
... and smaller slobbery, friendly dogs!
(that's Calpurnia the English bulldog, I think she's hot too!)
And look who her boyfriend is - Picasso, a fine Frenchie like myself!!
Well, we saw lots more than just that, but mom says my computer time is up! Hope you enjoyed my report from the Dog Fair. We have some more neat pictures, including a lot of my Greyhound aunt & cousins, but they'll have to wait for tomorrow's post. So for now, signing off, your roving Frenchie reporter -
